What better time to take the gondola to K-1? None, none at all. We do work for the two radio stations that are on the peak of Mount Killington, near Rutland, Vermont. In the summer, usually we can drive up there in a four wheel drive truck. In the winter, the gondola is the way to go. On this day, there was a 48-56 inch base, light north winds and air temperature around 10° F (-12° C) .
This is not my video, I did not have enough memory on my SIM card to film a video and I didn’t bring my expensive camera. However, this is a good example of the ride:
Not a bad way to get to a transmitter site, all things considered.
The reason for the trip today; repair work on the Nautel VS2.5 transmitter. All three power supplies and the power supply summing board needed to be replaced.
